I know I suck...

Ok so I know I totally suck, since I haven't updated my blog since who knows when...and since everyone has been so kind as to remind me that I haven't updated I thought I would take this awesome opportunity to do so. I'm going to apologize in advance as I don't currently have any new pictures but I promise I'll get some up soon...maybe even this week being as it's Halloween and all. news, ok so it was thanksgiving a few weeks back (and my birthday but that's a whole different story) and I had the awesome opportunity to go to my family's up in Cambridge. Now I have to admit I had only met my cousin Heather once at a family reunion back when I was like 14 and the rest of her family I couldn't recall ever having met so I was kinda excited slash nervous to go. See Heather is actually my dad's first cousin, so she's my second cousin once removed (no joke, it says so on my family genealogy website) and I really didn't know if it was going to be awkward or not. But it worked out ok, it was totally cool, and I even got to hang out with my really cool cousins Wes and Matt who are 6 and 3.
See how cute they are! Matt is the one on the left and Wes is the one on the right. We got to play bugs...I got to be the snakes. They were pretty slimy but I guess boys go for that kind of thing. As a side note, I am aware that snakes aren't bugs, however they were mixed in with all the other critters and it beat being the spiders. Who wants to be the spiders??? Not me!
Anyway it was a great Thanksgiving dinner and it was fun getting to know the Chatham side of the family. It's also exciting to know that I have family closer then New Brunswick. I'm not all alone in the giant province of Ontario! I too, have someplace I can spend the Holidays :)
I did get a new calling...I'm the Family History Enrichment Specialist...I'm not sure what that means, but I'm sure it'll be fun. (When I asked Brother Cole he just shrugged his shoulders and told me to ask the Relief Society president.) Should be good times...I don't think I'm actually in charge of anything for a change...makes for a nice break :)
All right, so I do have to head to bed now, but I promise I'll try and update a bit's Halloween this week after all!

haha, nice calling. i love the ones that make you sound important, but really it's fluff. like second councillor in the elder's quarum.
glad you finally updated. i was beginning to think we'd lost you out to sea!

I for SURE would rather be a spider than a snake. I HATE snakes! Good luck on you new calling. I'm sure you'll figure it out soon enough. I'm also glad for you that you have family there that you can spend holidays with. I've never had to be alone for a holiday but I don't imagine it would be fun.
